I have a new SAX parser filter in the planning stages called PIEngine.
It will take three actions w.r.t. PIs, selectable by mode switches:
notation resolution: replace any PI target with the URI
declared in the corresponding notation declaration, provided
there is one.
character references: convert numeric character references
in PI data to the corresponding characters
pseudo-elements: decode PIs as if they contained attributes
(a bare name is interpreted as name="name", as in SGML)
and pass them as empty elements with "?" prefixed to the name.
